-- that anti-islamic video that sparked the riots in cairo. that's the confusion, that film or a terrorist attack? they got 20 intelligence reports blaming the film riot in cairo. but, this is critical, those reports were disproved over time. but disproved after petraeus made his initial presentation to congress. so david petraeus believes there's a lot of confusion and a lot of misrepresentation of what he originally told congress when he briefed them initially after the attacks. he wants to go up there tomorrow, sort it all out. he will also say he had his own talking points separate from u.n. ambassador susan rice. that came from somewhere other in the administration than his direct talking point. so he wants to get all this sorted out. he believes it was the al qaeda sympathizer group ansar al sharia that was responsible for the attacks. >> so the question, barbara, is he is convinced that the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi had nothing, nothing to do with that anti-muslim video that'd been posted on youtube, that this was a terrorist attack by this al qaeda affiliated organiz
are continuing today in cairo. they may be temporary, they may be very, very limited, and they may never materialize at all what hamas has gained is first of all a certain diplomatic breakthrough. the amir of qatar went there before this happened. while it was going on, the prime minister of egypt went there the foreign minister of durky and foreign minister of tunisia went there. the prime minister of turkey may go. what hamas has been able to do is bring -- >> break out of its diplomatic cage a little bit. that's the benefit. the other thing is that this is a benefit to the people, the hamas factions in gaza who are fighting an internal power struggle with the external leadership that used to be based in damascus and is now disbursed all over the world. i think for different factions in hamas they've achieved things politically for themselves. the people of gaza may be in a sense of euphoria. there's going to be hangover when the dust settles when they bury the dead and count the costs, there ought to be as there was after cass led in 2008-2009, a clear contrast with a much better situ
hours before in cairo, almost a copycat of the demonstrations of our facility in cairo. >> i don't trust her. and the reason i don't trust her is because i think she knew better and if she didn't know better, she shouldn't be the voice of america. >> a visibly angry president obama fired back at both senators and defending his ambassador. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. but for them to p go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and it's outrageous. >> but mccain decided not to let the president have the last word and raced to the senate floor to respond. >> if the president thinks we are picking on people, he really does not have any idea of how serious this issue is. we're not picking on anybody. >> reporter: the president did make some news on the fiscal cliff, matt, while he made an emphatic case for raising taxes on the most wealthy. he said he wasn't drawing a red line on the idea they knew tax rates had to go back
that suggest that the video was the genesis of it. i know what was happening in cairo, they were concerned about that. but what is crystal clear is that immediately, they knew because they said they testified in the hearing we had before the election, that there they were witnessing this in real time and all of those indications were that this was a very orchestrated, very sophisticated attack on the compound that went on for hours and hours and hours. this was not a mob gone wild. there was not a video sparking this spontaneously. >> congressman, you've had your own hearings with darrell issa and there have been complaints from the democratic ranking members that they were not involved in either the witness lists or the briefings by the witnesses or questioning leading into it. what do you think of senator mccain and senator graham who are calling for a select committee which would be perhaps a joint committee, house and senate, bipartisan, to have one group like a watergate panel or an iran-contra panel to look into benghazi? >> the first part of your question i would beg to differ. the
. morsi's looking at the extremists, the people who were in the streets rioting over that video in cairo. and in gaza, there are extreme elements, sending the rockets across and there was -- you know, i was not optimistic. you can't be optimistic but there were negotiations going on between hamas and israel. through kind of third parties and then israel killed the guy who was doing the negotiations for hamas. hamas has to decide whether it wants to be with extremists or whether it wants to be with the other muslim brotherhood organizations in the region. >>> i want to turn back to the debates here at home. more fallout from the elections. matt, you wrote an interesting piece this week talking about the myths of the election of 2012. you wanted to take on, this wasn't about the brilliant tactics of the obama campaign, whether it was the early advertising their ground game, it wasn't a real choice election. this was a referendum of president obama that he won. >> if the republicans take away the wrong lessons from this they're going to repeat this and fail again in the next presidential el
went out and gave important speeches at oslo and cairo and yet four years later, opinion of america have improved herein they are, but certainly not to the degree that i think a lot of people, including people in the administration expected them to in this period of time. if you look at the hugh global attitudes index, the most recent one opinion of the united states is in negative territory for every country they serve and the middle east. also china and in the eye. about the only thing the rest of the world likes about america are movie, tv, science and technology. they're not too keen on democracy as america preaches to. so heading now into another four years of the obama administration, where are we and why are we here? how to get somewhere else? how do we live up to that promise? what went wrong -- what's going right in what can we do about it going forward? >> simple. first of all, i don't thing that the favorability ratings -- there we go. so i don't think favorability rating in the pew surveys are evidence of whether were doing something wrong or right and i think it's a hug
is taking pictures of some of zandt in cairo. -- some event in cairo. you knew it was and of effective look. -- an objective look. i do not know who is taking the pictures. they may be working for some small network because the network does not want to bring in its own cameraman. >> notice if you watch more than one newscast, notice the number of times you will see precisely the same video when it comes from overseas in large part because the networks do not have their own reporters, and they have brought it from the same source. . no. 2, what is wrong with having a local reporter covering the event? a local reporter speaks the language and knows the people. let's say the local reporter is reported from tehran and the local reporter knows if he or she makes a misstep, they are going to be arrested and thrown in jail. the american reporter may get thrown out of the country, but that is probably the worst that is going to happen. i find there is no willingness to believe objectivity in journalism is possible. i keep hearing there is no such thing as absolute objectivity, to which i say, when
it is the cairo speech that you delivered in 2009 or your repeated and important declarations on prevention of iran's nuclear capabilities, actions matter most. don't mistake the former for the latter. and today i just have to step out of my role for a moment because as a historian today is the anniversary of my favorite ever presidential statement on the middle east. 70 years ago today, president franklin delano roosevelt issued the following statement for the people of the middle east. just imagine a president saying that. praise be to you and the name of god the passionate, the merciful. may god be upon you. this is a great day for you because behold a week, the american warriors have arrived. we have come here to fight the great jihad of freedom. we have come to set you free. today is the 70th anniversary of the landing on north africa and prisoner agreed jihad of american freedom once again but we don't remember that because words matter so much less than actions. if those are three broad lessons were the three most urgent issues on your agenda here won't repeat the words of my colleag

the fence like what happened in cairo. there was clarity from the very beginning in this administration about what happened. what we didn't know is who and why. and that what's we are struggle something try to find out today. megyn: simon, do you deny the president linked what happened in benghazi to the video? >> the administration did. megyn: the president did. >> the idea that he blamed it for weeks. megyn: just if we -- i'm asking you. because i understand your argument. but when i listened to the president in the days after, there was no question that he was linking what happened in benghazi to the video. there was no question that he was doing that. >> what i have said on this show governor i don't think it matters. megyn: that's a different argument. that's different than you saying he didn't make the linkage. that's what mark is taking issue with. >> i'm saying it doesn't matter. what happened is what we knew from the beginning that it was a military-style attack. what there was confusion about inside the intelligence community and state department, cia, everybody, was what exac
obama has tried to do and in his famous speech in cairo is that he wants to deal with these countries and talk to the electorate. now we have an entirely different landscape, but in egypt, libya, and tunisia. relationship with these countries, these are countries with democratic governments. some of them have chosen paths that are a little more moderate, some leaning a little bit more to the fundamentalist side, but they're still fundamentally democratic and that will be a big challenge for the obama administration. host: its next for egypt? -- what is next for egypt? ?uest: in terms of ta host: the obama administration. guest: they still need to establish some of the legitimate government there. after the incredibly uplifting movements in it to rear square, it has devolved into a long protracted -- tahrir square, it has devloved. there is still no clear internal structure. it is enforcing the new governing structure and egypt has not really begun to speak out. this is a populous and important nation. there really have not since, since mubarak left office. the administration is workin
been tied also to those ongoing riots back in cairo, egypt, over a film. he's going to talk about all of it. what they knew, when they knew it. the key question that senators believe they want to get to is did petraeus have an indication off the bat it was a straight up terrorist attack and either not tell the white house or not tell them on capitol hill. >> and, barbara, we also heard the president in his press conference say that he has no evidence from what he's been able to see that classified information was disclosed. however during that question and answer period, that may happen, now on friday, is there concern from the pentagon there might be some potential security breaches that would be revealed? >> reporter: well, you mean from his affair with paula broadwell? >> correct. >> reporter: well, look, david petraeus has told a number of his personal friends who have been authorized to speak to reporters including myself that he never disclosed classified information to paula broadwell. but we saw that video a couple of nights ago of fbi agents carting away boxes of material and
